Aeneus is the titular protagonist of the Aeneid, Aeneas is one of the great epic heroes. One of the ancestors of Emperor Augustus, Aeneas is one of the only survivors of the Trojan War. A fearless warrior and remarkable leader, Aeneas guides his men through uncharted waters and terrible adversity, finally bringing them to the land to which they were destined: the land that would one day become Rome. Aeneas is the embodiment of a number of characteristics highly valued by the Romans of Virgil's era, including piety (obedience to the will of the gods), courage, skill at arms, leadership, and determination.
